The film features an ordinary garden snail whose dream to become the fastest snail in the world comes true. The film is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2013.
Theo, a.k.a Turbo , is a garden snail who dreams of being the greatest racer in the world, just like his hero, 5-time Indianapolis 500 champ, Guy Gagne . His obsession with speed and all things fast has made him an oddity and an outsider in the slow and cautious snail community, and a constant embarrassment to his careful older brother, Chet . Turbo desperately wishes he could escape the slow-paced life he’s living.
As luck would have it, Turbo gets that chance one fateful day after a freak accident when he gets sucked into the turbocharger of a drag racer, fusing his DNA with nitrous oxide on a Street Race when he suddenly finds himself vested with the power of incredible speed, accuracy, as well as some of the characteristics of a car, such as eyes that light up like headlights, a shell that blinks red like taillights and makes car sounds and music from a radio.
Turbo embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the impossible: racing against the best that IndyCar has to offer, but in the Indianapolis 500 there is no way a snail can race in a competition that is meant for cars. He is the ultimate underdog who achieves the impossible by refusing to let his limitations get in the way of his dreams.
Turbo: Music From The Motion Picture is the soundtrack of the film. Henry Jackman composed the original music for the film, which will be released on July 16, 2013 by Relativity Music Group
Along with Ryan Reynolds, who stars as the eponymous character, the film also features Paul Giamatti, Michael Peña, Snoop Dogg, Maya Rudolph, Michelle Rodriguez and Samuel L. Jackson.
The film will be followed by a television series, titled Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team), which will air on Netflix in December 2013. Consisting of 56 11-minute episodes, the series will follow Turbo and his crew on their worldwide exploits while mastering new stunts and competing with villains
